Cognitive Linguistics Today

Series:

Barbara Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk and Kamilla Turewicz

This volume contains papers presented at the first international cognitive linguistics conference in Poland Cognitive Linguistics in the Year 2001, organized by the Faculty of Philology of the University of Łódź on 19-23 April 2001. A number of invited papers are also included. With this publication we intend to offer a survey of the problems taken up by Cognitive Linguistics today as well as some solutions. The leading themes are interdisciplinarity, applicability and research methodology in Cognitive Linguistics. The issue of interdisciplinarity has always been part and parcel of cognitive linguistic studies, in which different fields of science and humanities converge. This context creates a certain tension within the research methods used in CL analysis, some of which are dealt with in this volume. The applicability of CL research findings to diverse fields such as literature, culture studies, language education and others, involving a number of leading projects on the CL agenda, are also represented in the volume.
Contents: Theory and Method – Figures of Thought – Cognition and Pragmatics – Case Studies – Applied Studies.
